    man ifconfig
    For your cablenet connection, you'll probably need the Roaring Penguin's PPPoE client.
    It should be there in RH9 by default. It's called rp-pppoe. There are many HOWTOs available on the internet that show how to configure it.
    If you don't have it, get it from http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pengui...e_rp-pppoe.php

    rp-pppoe is for DSL only. It shouldn't work with cable internet providers. Cable internet (from the 4 or 5 companies I have dealt with) is a simple DHCP setup.

    For RH 9, docs for setting this up are located here:
    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...ng-client.html

    Best,

    In India, cable internet is also provided as PPP over Ethernet..
    And rp-pppoe is applicable not only to DSL, but any other service that is provided as PPPoE - be it Internet access or VPN, anything.
    PPPoE has its own RFCs - it's a matured standard.

    If you follow the internet configuration wizard from system setting it will be easy to figure it out.
